Gym Class Heroes' New Album to Make Fans Guessing


April 09, 2008 07:46:51 GMT


Gym Class Heroes will make their fans guessing in their next studio album, "The Quilt". The award-winning Hip-Hop group will not write the names of the featured guests on the liner notes of their new album, instead they will leave fans to guess through the artists' voice, an approach that they describe as "movie aesthetic".

This idea struck the band after seeing albums putting too many features on them. "I can't speak for everyone but I hate seeing lots of features on an album," frontman Travis McCoy told Billboard.com. "So, instead we're having a movie aesthetic, where everyone is going to be part of the cast as opposed to being featured. You won't know who is on the album just by looking at the liner notes. You'll know only if you listen and recognize the person's voice. This way, people know we didn't do stuff for name sake, but really because that person belonged on that song."
